Warm Cinnamon Skillet Apples

Updated: Jan 5, 2022

Warm, comforting, and delicious. My Warm Cinnamon Skillet Apples are the smell of childhood!

I'm SO excited to give you a sneak peek at a recipe in my Six-or Less cookbook!

This recipe is one of the simple dessert recipes in this book. If you love simple, delicious, easy-to-make recipes, you'll love this book!

Fun fact, these Cinnamon Skillet Apples are free of:

- Refined flour

- Refined white sugar

- Butter

All of the goodness without the junk! Sign me up!

The smell of childhood

There is nothing like the smell of apples and cinnamon baking in the oven. It brings me back to my childhood in Massachusetts where apple pie was the dessert of choice at all holidays; Thanksgiving, Christmas, and any other time of year. Somehow, we could never get enough of it.

What's your favorite pie?

To this day, it is still my favorite pie and now I've found a way to enjoy every bite without any refined sugar, flour, or loads of butter. Cue these delicious warm skillet cinnamon apples.

A healthier choice

Feel free to sub brown sugar if that is what you have on hand, but I really encourage you to try coconut palm sugar. This palm sugar is reminiscent of brown sugar but with a lower glycemic index.

To peel or not to peel

This dish calls for apples that have not been peeled, but of course, feel free to do so. The reason I left the skin on is because this is where much of the fiber, vitamins and nutrients are!
